Because of poor mobility I was limited getting around. The spots I had to shot from were very limited . My wife explored a bit and said the sea scape was beautiful. We also saw two whales. There were many people at the restaurant.

We were in the Portland Area and went state park. It is a very nice setting with a great overlook of the ocean. Unfortunately, the Two Lights are not at the State Park so you have to drive to see them.

Easy walking paths, picnic sites in many spots. Parking is plentiful. Interesting plaque about the harbor defenses at this location. Nice senior discount.

I could have skipped this and would have been fine. There were not lighthouses, just a park on a cliff looking at the ocean.

You can really one see one of the lighthouses and can 't even get close to the other. There are eateries but we did not eat there. The coast is beautiful but parking is very limited.

Gorgeous views and coastline. Dozens of private, hidden away benches and picnic tables with spectacular views. Rocky coastline as its best. No crowds on a spectacular summer day. While most of the paths were easy to moderate hikes and not accessible, there are accessible paths...More

I’ll keep this short. Do not eat here. The food was awful, awful, awful. Beyond awful. They are highly unaware and uneducated about food allergies/sensitivities. With the exception of 1 employee, everyone was rude and uninterested. The only redeeming quality was the view.

Yes, the west tower is still there, although it is no longer a lighthouse. It was converted to a watch tower during WW II, and is now privately owned.
